there and i would also add these voters some of them are voting because of religion and a half irish catholic family members who are economic populist but will never vote for a pro-choice democrat they never will. i wish that were not true but i don't think that we can minimize the extent to which that is a sincere belief of the economic interests and finally i said this and it's really amazing that these red state people are the welfare queens now frankly the most of federal dollars but i think they are people now who are taking food stamps and if they wish they were not and kind of blame obama were the government, and i think we have to accept that and think about how to talk about it differently rather than saying they're crazy and voting against their self-interest. estimate your listening to the commonwealth club review program. our guest is salam notte, editor and msnbc analyst joan walsh discussing her book what's the matter with white people why we long for iggulden age that never was. you brought up religion. religion does not enter in political discussion in europe even though they

religions. mitt romney is part of their religion and from the series. why was and i never questioned it up obama. he was a muslim. when these people would rather have a muslim as ftse it the president is not a muslim. a thinking of that. the service oft religion. north carolina being a big state on the bible state. what have we been able to see as far as the gov. romney and his mormonism? >> first of all, i would like to say, by a group with nancy a stake this country was founded on the religious and freed them. and didn't think somebody to from a to the governor susan in a-counter. prism of mama as tough as ever a question and he is now a increased imploded there is something he needs to be made it clear. it just happens to be he is a christian. that is a conversation was a negative into when a we should not be in the crux of the election. clarkson first thing we should do, which it said the harm strike you must. everything as an opponent, is should not be a realm possibility. they would test the things with it did or not. nobody is everything about mitt romney. he says he is a warning. i
at religion first. we are talking about 23% of the evangelicals in colorado and only 2% mormon. the bottom line is can you take religion and does that directly correlate to votes? >> not only religion, but in the state of colorado, let's look at people there. they are fiercely independent. they maintain their strong values in their western traditions. if you look at the unemployment rate it is very high. mitt romney has momentum there. but if you look at the ballot initiatives -- >> one second. we will slow down. the unemployment high is not that high. it is 8%. i am just saying. >> exactly. >> we would like no one to be out of a job. >> exactly. >> you can't say it is very high. >> well, when the president says if you pass my jobs bill and my stimulus plan that unemployment would be 5.4%, arthel, that's high. to get back to what i sac weighing about the ballot initiatives, if you look at the initiatives that would push them and dealing with increasing government spending and increasing taxes. that goes to mitt romney's platform. >> all right. ryan, let me talk to you right now. we know th

for religion. so block women's basic health at the same time you provide public funding for religion. this is going on at the state and federal level. and my only concern is that people will not wake up to it soon enough. but i think women are wakie ini and this is why we're going to win. >> it's been 72 hours since the mourdock story has been unearthed nationally. do you see a change? do you see this really affecting this election? do you really see that women are waking up to this agenda? >> i can tell you that we have volunteers in swing states like virginia and ohio and wisconsin and what i'm seeing is more energy. more energy on our side. more people calling and saying we want to get on the phones with you and go door to door with your activists. i am seeing that. >> terri o'neill, great to have you with us tonight. i appreciate your time. >>> coming up, conservatives are clutching their pearls over an obama campaign ad that recycles a joke made by one of their idols over 30 years ago. stay tuned. today, jason is he to volunteer to help those in need. when a twinge of back pain
out there are typically democratic blue-collar working-class men and women, roman catholic in religion -- certainly not all of them, and pro-union. these were the quintessential reagan democrats. they were in counties adjacent to pittsburgh like beaver and westmorland and washington and corrine and further to the east -- kim-shree and fayette. those counties have a propensity to vote republican, particularly in the elections. they are culturally conservative, pro-gun, pro-life, not particularly fond of gay- rights. then think of pennsylvania, draw a big t up the center of the state, fanned out across the new york border, not quite getting to erie or the northeastern part of the state, the big t -- that is the conservative area of the state. basically white, protestant, does not have a definable ethnic group in particular. once you get east of the susquehanna river, with the exception of a few counties, the demography changed sharply. let's get down to southeast -- philadelphia, heavily democratic -- democratic, but the suburban counties, and montgomery, chester, delaware, the swing tow
religions that are completely welcoming of marriages. episs copal church is a very good example. so what we're talking about here is really the granting of a marriage license by a civil institution. going down to city hall and getting your civil marriage license. while i completely understand and honor the caller's concept of not wanting to judge and wanting to treat all equally, at the end of the day the only way that we achieve that is by offering all americans equal protection under the law. and really only a civil marriage license when it comes to the recognition of our families provides that. so it is important to hold on to the concept of wanting to protect all americans. and i would continue to engage with the caller and really kind of all thoughtful fair-minded people that are on this journey. but what i would offer is that if we really are true to the concept of equality in this country and really wanting to treat all americans equally, and there's a thoughtful conversation of the issues at play and we don't want second class institutions for some and kind of different treatment, i
of politics and religion. you would be wrong. i'd like you to take a listen to this, please. >> and remember when obama forced christian organizations to provide insurance coverage that was contrary to their religious beliefs? that's the real barack obama. that's the real threat to our religious freedom. >> jonathan, i'm sorry, once again to pick up on another robo lie by romney. but i thought the president allowed for exceptions for religious organizations in relation to the provision of contraception. is that not correct? >> yes, that is correct. >> and yet the robo says the exact opposite. >> and yet you are shocked and surprised and probably horrified that the robo call for governor romney is repeating a lie that has been knocked down. is it controversial thing that's happened with -- with what the president did, sure. but the question is settled. we've seen this with the health exemption. we've seen it with welfare. we've seen it with the jeep ad. we've seen it time and time again with governor romney's campaign. they are -- they said during the republican convention one of the seniored
to it. i think that relation, not just the catholic church, but faith and religion are misrepresented in the major media. first of all, you can present your own opinion on fact, as fact, because why? as long as you're talking about religion, religion is totally subjective and the not based on any truth, no matter what you say, it's okay. what's an example of that? this last week, bill collar of the new york times wrote an article how to die, it was all about end of life care. the suggestions he made was that the reason we're not able to, as a society, get to a point in which our loved ones can die peacefully is because the catholic church would never allow such practices to occur. meaning what? a suggestion that the catholic church would require a family member to go to extreme means to keep somebody who is dying alive. it's simply not the truth. but, nobody stands up to it because you know what? as long as you're talking about religion, as long as you can offer any opinion you want and pass it as fact because religion itself is purely subjective. >> clayton: what about during the vic

[ male announcer ] you like who you are... and you learned something along the way. this is the age of knowing what you're made of. so, why let erectile dysfunction get in your way? talk to your doctor about viagra. 20 million men already have. ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take viagra if you take nitrates for chest pain; it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. side effects include headache, flushing, upset stomach, and abnormal vision. to avoid long-term injury, seek immediate medical help for an erection lasting more than four hours. stop taking viagra and call your doctor right away if you experience a sudden decrease or loss in vision or hearing. this is the age of taking action. viagra. talk to your docto
you blame everything on it now. >> dana: what you are seeing is the last gasp of the green religion. it's a sad thing to see when you are on current tv a your boss calls up and you have to agree with evening he says. mm-hmm. absolutely. absolutely. unfortunate because it stunts the conversation about how do we diversify our energy sources and improve the transmission system. >> kimberly: energy independence. >> bob: you are starting to get me to question my conclusion on this so i'll wait for flat earth newsletter to make a decision. >> kimberly: you are a flat earth society. >> greg: that is all he got. what do you think? isn't this is a way to get government in your pocket? >> kimberly: embarrassing because the facts aren't there to support it. why the stretch? why the gaffe to try to survive like delay have a life support trying to cling to it. meteorologists, anyone who is credible and can count. >> dana: also a way to kill colds. that is the goal. if you're in ohio, west virginia, pennsylvania, remember that. this is the goal. no more coal powered plants. >> eric: al gore makes
, grover norquist, can't touch revenues, the neocons, the religion right. does he have to check back because he doesn't have a personal core? >> right. and so, you know, if they won't buy it in brown, let's make it in blue. that sort of business mindset i think he brings to everything he does. and so, you know, they wanted severely conservative rhetoric during the primary, so he gave it to them. now he thinks they want different rhetoric. >> campaigning in ohio vice president biden pointed out as romney plays up his bipartisanship, he may find his biggest headaches come from his own party. as i was suggesting. let's listen. >> ask them the question, when have you ever seen governor romney take on the establishment of his party? what do you think prospects are that governor romney would attempt to do any of the things he now says he supports? what do you think the chances of him doing that with the republican-controlled congress? what do you think the chances are he's going to tell the people, you know, you're dead wrong. that's basically what he's saying now. >> grover norquist is th
a mormon. well, this country was founded on different relidges relidgens and mormon is a christian religion. so would people rather have a muslim -- host: the spt not a muslim and i think you know that. but let's talk about the subject of religion north carolina being a big state on the bible belt and what's the feeling as far as you've been able to see regarding governor romney and his mormonism in north carolina? guest: first of all, i would just like to say that i agree with nancy to the extent that this country was founded on religious freedom so i do not think that someone's religion could come into the conversation in a negative manner. and as you stated president obama is a christian and not a muslim so that's something that needs to be made clear. it just happens to be that he's a christian and that's what he is. but that's a conversation that we should not get into the weeds on when that's not supposed the crux of our election when we are a country that was founded on our religious freedom host: our next caller is from william. caller: how are you doing? guest: well. how are you? c
, not necessarily, you know, the hindu religion. are you saying on those grounds it would be okay then? >> if they strip away that and if that's an accurate statement which we heard, then the exercise will continue and there is no lawsuit. i agree on that point. >> it's based -- >> the allegation is -- it's a little more than nam ma stay. it's a little more than that. >> okay. no. it's -- believe me, if the guy is for real, let them file the federal lawsuit. not going to happen. he's going to lose. >> we'll see. >> until then they get to continue on. let's talk about another case, this one involving a famous family name, the kennedy name. douglas kennedy, tenth of 11 children of robert kennedy. he's being charged with child endangerment. the trial is under way. he was in a hospital, he wanted to remove his day's old baby from the hospital and the nurses allege that he got violent with them. he actually removed the bracelet, the security bracelet from the child and said he wanted to get some fresh air. richard, you first. this is in your backyard there in new york. what is really at the
of this campaign without having a heated discussion on race or mormonism or mitt romney's religion, which also a lot of people have issues with. and i almost hope that we get -- we're that close to november 6th. let's get there without this kind of poison becoming part of the political discourse this late on. >> yeah. listen, this is -- >> this isn't something that's being introduced. it's always been there. because we haven't talked about it doesn't mean it isn't there. just means we haven't talked about it. >> i'll say this, when people say there's no evidence that, like lz says, what are you going to believe? me or your lying ears or your lying eyes. you hear things. you know what the insinuations are and then you wonder as i said to you, why put him out there and why after he says a number of crazy things -- and he's not the only one. you don't need a misstep at this point. that is a question. he obviously speaks to some people in the republican party who mitt romney and paul ryan want to go to the voting booths. and that's why he's there continuing to say it. we'll move on. it's a great c
. lingering into thursday. the high pressure religion not going anywhere soon. in fact, it's going to allow for more warm temperatures. temperatures above normal, anywhere from two too five geese degrees above normal due to this system here. but when it shifts tomorrow that's when we will see temperatures begin to change a little bit. they won't be as mild but bringing us down to seasonable, normal readings. 85 in los angeles. warm there. 81 in sacramento with 76 in oakland today. low 80s for livermore. upper 70s san jose. so, wow, very mild it warm afternoon. 70 monterey, 81 hollister. and like carolyn said, you are watching the game here outside, it will be nice and mild. in detroit very chilly with numbers in the 40s with the north wind. here's the look ahead with 60s coast, lower oliver's inland. the sea breeze returns with the to go tonight. as much as five degrees cooler tomorrow and still cooling tuesday. the rain not coming in until midday wednesday in the north bay. we are talking maybe three quarters of an inch, maybe a quarter to half-inch central bay. probably not anything south
to be built in their state. host: she brought up religion, so let's talk about the role of churches, parishes, synagogues can play in the campaign and whether they are allowed to contribute. guest: they're not criminals not contributing directly to the campaigns, just like a corporation could not contribute. so we're not seeing money come directly from religious organizations. but certainly people's beliefs, people's attitudes toward important political issues are sometimes if shaped by their religious beliefs. and they have been important to populations -- they have been important population, people you can rely on in the election, since they are older and have certain religious beliefs. but they cannot play a financial goal. host: john is a democrat. caller: i just wanted to say that bush, romney, and the republicans have set up this tax structure which helps these companies take our jobs overseas for cheaper labor. and the internet will also suck up a lot of jobs in the coming future. you can have a job almost anywhere, so all the tax money but being received, i believe, is going to go to
of religion here. but we're less directed by spirituality because in the past we have little history of our days being shaped by acts of god. someone once told me part of my the bible belt is spiritually minded is they have a farming tradition and acts of god have a direct impact on their lives. new york isn't like that but we have gained considerable experience over the past 11 years on how to pull together after tragedy. so there will be families without power and homes damaged by trees and we will help each other out and dig out and move on because that's what family does. anyone who thinks new yorkers aren't a community that looks at itself as a family doesn't know new york. sure we might toss a few elbows in line at whole foods, but what family doesn't fight sometimes? family is supposed to fight, and then come together in crisis and that's what we'll do in the face of sandy. all right. that does it for "the cycle." my brother, martin, it's yours. >> thank you. good afternoon. it's monday, october the 29th, and sandy is due to make landfall in just hours. >>> america bunkers down from
candidates. as a catholic how has your view on abortion been shaped by your religion? >> i'm a catholic. i'm es in pailian so i guess i can't answer that question. >> your shus husband is a catholic. >> i'm episcopalian. we raised our children as catholics but i would be happy to talk about my view on abortion. my view on abortion is that it should be safe legal and rare. >> this is a valid point that is and a difference that is between us that is not manufactured. we have babies in america and iowa that are being aborted because they are baby girls balls the mother want as boy instead of a girl. we have evidence of that. it is coming in from the asian community as well. we have legislation that prohibits sex selected aworks. she says she thinks it is ridiculous to talk about it. i think it matters. i think that it matters to the little girls that are being apwrted. election day is one week away. find key races from across the country on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org/campaign2012. "washington journal" continues. >> we are back with scott keeter the director of survey research. unders
port authority police, my fire department. nobody stops and asks you what your religion is, nobody stops and asks you what your political party affiliation is. folks are just rolling up their sleeves, getting to work. so what you're seeing in the field, what you're seeing with residents, with emergency responders, is what we should be seeing with all our elected leaders as well. the president of the united states, our governor and really, dozens of local elected leaders of all parties across the state, we're all pulling together. we're all in the same foxhole, all fighting the same enemy here. it's not refreshing, frankly, that's the standard that built america in the past and will help us forge forward in the future. >> we're hearing that there have been as many as six fatalities now in new jersey. that death toll may well rise. there are many areas people can't get to. what are you hearing about people who may be trapped or areas where these services have simply not been able to get to them? >> that's the crisis. that's what has me concerned. the storm may have passed but the cha
to their guns and religion, the kind of white working-class workers that the president is having the most trouble connecting with. the obama campaign is advertising as well. they have a turnout machine in philadelphia. pacs don't want the obama campaign to gin up their turnout machine. i think that machine will start to get engaged and that machine will drive president obama's margin down there. that's in southeastern pennsylvania. host: we're talking about an october surprise in campaign 2012 and the history of it. this on twitter -- guest: she's probably right. many people aboard a voted. there is 1 weeks ago. the average american is paying attention to something other than politics, whether it's their own economic situation or recovering from storm damage in a swing state like virginia or new hampshire. -- many people have voted already. ballistics of trying to get around the place after a storm can be a real problem -- the logistics. it's not like either of these guys will have a game changer. the next couple days will be focused on not doing something stupid around the hurricane and
him. >> bill: religion crew. >> disparagement. joe the plumber doesn't. he doesn't have a pickup truck. there seems to be a real dissociation between him and the hoypaloy. >> bill: do you think it has to do with grievance. in some african-americans african-american communities there are grievants to whites that aren't pathetic to their cause. that might be driving a little bit of it. there are some african-americans who believe that the reason they are not prospering as a community, all right. is because society hasn't done enough and the reason it hasn't done enough is because of rich white guys? >> no. i don't think of it like that with obama. i think of him as one was those swells who looks down at people aren't up to speed intellectually with him. i don't get a color thing off of him. i know that crowd: they sit around and they, you know, they have jack henry abbot and norman there. >> and canopies? >> and all that stuff. >> bill: you have ever had a canopy at your house? i don't even know what a canopy is. >> the thing you put over the picnic table when you have burgers. you put
want to remind the children of god that we know how this country is. host: take us through the religion to the election. guest: i will do that if you allow me to complete my comments. host: go ahead. caller: this country is based on so-called christianity. i will tell you this, if they choose mitt romney, who believed that jesus was not borne by the holy spirit -- host: we are going to save the religious lesson for another day. on the republican line, chris, your review on at the election in the state of new york. caller: i feel very lonely as a republican in new york. i would like to make comments on michael bloomberg. you referred to him as governor bloomberg, he is the mayor. it is focused on climate change. mr. bloomberg is supposed to be a business expert. it says nothing about the future of this country under president obama's second administration. and something else about michael bloomberg. staten island is in ruins. one-third of manhattan is without power for five days. he will have the new york city marathon start in staten island and run throughout the five boroughs through t
